iPad WiFi problems and possible fixes

Some of the iPads tend to have some issues with the Wi-Fi connectivity, for trouble shooting this defect; apple itself has put forward certain steps which might prove useful for resolving them. Let us take a look at what they are.

If your device is repeatedly getting problems when connecting to a particular Wi-Fi network, then you can do the following steps for resolving the issue, first thing to try is to update the Wi-Fi router firmware. Just verify that the Wi-Fi router firmware is up to
date and if not, update it. Next thing you can do is to verify that you are using WPA or WPA2 wireless security. If not, use them from now on. It’s been known that some Wi-Fi routers which are using WEP wireless security, may cause intermittent disconnecting
to iPad which requires re-typing a password for connecting again. Using WPA or WPA2 wireless security on your network will automatically resolve this issue.

It’s also a good practice to check to see whether your screen brightness is set to the lowest level by going to Settings > Brightness & Wallpaper. If brightness is at lowest
level, just increase it by moving the slider to the right and set auto brightness to off.

Finally, renew IP address if needed, in some larger wireless networks it might be
necessary for you to renew your IP address. You can renew your IP address using the
following steps: go to Settings > Wi-Fi, locate the current network which you are using
and then click it, then click “Renew Lease” if the problem is still present, just restart
the Wi-Fi and the problem will be solved for sure. Once the problem is fixed, you can
access Wi-Fi properly just like before. Happy browsing.
